Hello,

Who do you think is the maker of the jacket this ww2 veteran pilot is wearing?
Looks nice. What do you think the leather is ? Doesn't look like capeskin, could be steer or horse.


Thanks.

Looks like something new / repro.

Could be this Noble House

Yes was thinking also about that ,

But the NobleHouse has a back yoke the veteran's jacket does not.

Hello,

In what leather is that?

Thanks.
Mines cowhide think some were horse. It’s my oldest leather jacket and one I’ll unlikely ever part with. Heavy due to the thick lining but a great wearer when it’s chilly & carries a civilian vibe given its a cyclist jacket. 2nd hand I think they come up generally cheaper than an ELC A-2.
